[K-drama Review]: Touch Your Heart


In 2019, Yoo In-na and Lee Dong-wook teamed up to star in Touch Your Heart. This drama brought two highly competitive industries into one beautiful love story.

Disclaimers | Semi-spoiler free | Previous Review The Smile Has Left Your Eyes 

Synopsis 

The beautiful actress Oh Jin-shim, who goes by her stage name Oh Yoon-seo, found herself in a scandal that ultimately damages her career. She was left jobless for two years and her popularity slowly dropped too. However, a special job opportunity comes up when she's offer a role in a television series that centers on law. However, she must agree to gain work experience at a law firm before she can secure the role. Not to mention, she must agree to be a secretary to a cold lawyer name Kwon Jung-rok. Touch Your Heart tells a compelling love story between a hardworking lawyer and an ambitious actress. 


One of the reasons why I enjoy this drama was because it gave me the realities of what it's like to be an actress and a lawyer. There's drama, gossips, debates, and tough times that some people don't know about unless they are in the industry.

Next, this drama is incredibly humorous even though it does have a number of mystery and "hard to solve" cases. However, at the end of the day, it's still a rom/com drama so having those cute and humorous moments definitely lightens up the mood. If you're searching for a (somewhat) of a typical "boss and secretary" love story then this drama is the one for you.

Last, I admire this drama because it's not necessarily a typical rom/com where there's one distress character and one perfect character. There's not just one person who's madly in love with one character. There's a great balance among the two main characters because they have their fair share of hard times, good times, and everything in-between.


One thing I wished that Touch Your Heart focused on more was the love and affection between Yoon-seo and Jung-rok. I feel like the drama played it really safe with the love and affection scenes. Of course, we had a little taste of their romance in a number of scenes but I wished there was just a little bit more so we can really feel the romance between them. 

However, this is a typical thing that happens for most dramas. K-dramas are not the same as western TV shows where it's "normal" and "ok" to show more PG-13 and NC-17 scenes. 

As for the secondary characters, they were really funny and they brought a great vibe to the drama. However, I think the secondary characters were a bit distracting. They didn't add much to the storyline but rather they "filled up" any empty spaces that was in the drama. 


I would give this drama a 9.3/10. It met the minimal requirements that I would look for in a rom/com drama. However, a few tweaks here and there would have made the drama more compelling and enjoyable. Nonetheless, it was still an amazing drama that I would recommend to anyone who wants to watch a light, "mysterious," and humorous love story.

Journal 1: The Month of Love & A New Beginning

Hi everybody! Welcome to my first blog post. Today, I'm writing a reflection on January, then I'll share a few life lessons that I've learned in January. Afterwards, I will end the post with my goals for February.

January
January was definitely a long and intensive month for me because many things have changed in my career. I think everything happens for a reason and there was a valid reason why I chose to leave my job. There was a reason why I had to over come some obstacles in my life in January.

So, I wouldn't say this was an ideal way to start the new year (haha), however I learned so much about life and myself in January. So, if you did have a rough January, just know that you were not alone! Many people struggled too and it's a reminder to all of us that life is full of ups and downs. We just have to continue to move forward the best that we can.

Synopsis

Set in 1999, this drama follows Ma Dong-cha and Go Mi-ran, two people who decide to participate in a "Frozen Human Experiment." However, something goes wrong and instead of them waking up in 24-hours, they wake up 20 years later. Worse part, they have to maintain a 31.5 C / 88-90 degree F in order to survive.



Melting Me Softly had A LOT of potential and I was expecting so much from this drama. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed and I was a bit disappointed to say the least. However, I want to share some positive things I did notice in this 16-episode series.

First, if you're a 90s kids you'll definitely feel nostalgic watching this drama. From flip phones, CD players, and 90s fashion, this drama did a fantastic job …
